Garage Door Innovation

A British company has an idea to make garage doors more energy-efficient and useful to a home: Make them generate heat.

Garage Door Restore, based in Blackpool, England, has created garage doors that use methods such as air-source heat pumps and solar panels to generate warmth. To create the prototype, the company partnered with a Lancaster University professor and two full-time students, who together will begin production.

The garage doors and the technology used inside them will be displayed at CUBE, the Manchester architecture and design center dedicated to developments in engineering. The firm will then take the display on the road to exhibit at different shows across Europe, where strict many government-imposed energy-efficiency requirements have spurred similar innovations.

Garage Door Restore is a branch network of contractors affiliated with manufacturer Complete Door Engineering.
